In my opinion there is no reason to live in a state like that, everyone in Cal. needs to move out & let the rest of the state go broke.
California has 53 Congressional districts. 53 representatives with the authority to vote on legislation that will have binding effect on you and me. And you want gun owners to retreat from California?
How about New York? Should we concede their 29 Congressional districts to anti-gunners?
How about the 19 Congressional districts of Illinois?
What we need to do is send our support there. Those of us in solidly pro-gun states need to support those who are on the front lines of the battle. It's not enough anymore to simply join the NRA and expect them to do everything for us. The NRA is simply ineffective in California, New York, Illinois, and the few other rigidly anti-gun states. They don't have the tools or the talents to successfully operate in these states. The NRA's heavy Republican position makes it easy for them to be ignored in these Democratic states.
We need to lend our support to our brethren. We need to take the fight to our enemies, fight them on their ground so we don't have to fight them here at home.
What we need to support are pro-gun organizations that can successfully operate in these states. Organizations that can make a Democratic pro-gun argument to Democrats in these states.
the Firearms Policy Coalition.
This is a fairly new organization currently comprised of 2 respected national level organizations (Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms) and 8 state-level organizations.
You can join FPC and one of its member organizations for just $15. If you join only one, I recommend SAF. If you've got $50 to put towards gun rights, I'd suggest joining SAF and CCRKBA ($30) and donating $4 each to CalGuns, Comm2A, HDF, IC, and NJ2AS.
I would also recommend donate
, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.
Sen. Steinberg said that the guns used in Sandy Hook were legally purchased, but they were not they were stolen from the guns owner after shooting her.
